Kin Mugi has been a great success in Japan in terms of overall sales since it’s release. I find it a nice autumn/winter low malt standard. Good hop delivery and nice appearance when mugged. The head is short lived as with all low malt beers.
Not so good in the summer...has a bit of heaviness, in flavors and dryness. A great week end beer very affordable for autumn / winter.

Golden, thick head. Has a sweet, clean but heavy pale malt character. Not bad generic lager.

Can. A golden beer with a yellowish head. The aroma has notes of straw, vitamins, and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, metal, and boring hops, leading to a dry finish.

My father-in-law’s home beer choice. Not terrible for a daisan, but nothing I would choose off the shelf. Goes ok with food and finish is somewhat ok. Lacking in flavor but not much worse than other Japanese macros.

Malty aroma and flavor. Slightly bitter. No great bitterness that disappears quickly. Fortunately. On the verge of unpalatable. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

I actually like it. Had it several times while in Japan and it has a pleasant taste.

While drinkable enough for a daisan, its still skunky to both your mouth and nose.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can from Kitchen Court supermarket in Kagurazaka. Pours very pale and clear golden amber with a huge white head. Nose is not promising. Bit of sulphur in the head, then dry macro lager yeast, some lemon hop, cereal grain and cardboard. Taste is surprisingly soft, watery and lacking carbonation. One of the most watery lagers I’ve had. Some dry lager acidic prickle and grain, but not much else. Bit soapy on the finish too. Poor lager.
